This is a magnificent large antique oil on canvas painting of Flora, after the Renaissance Italian painter, Titian (1488/90 -1576), circa 1850 in date.
Exactly as in the original painting which is currently displayed at the Galleria Uffizi in Florence, a young woman, Flora, emerges from the background of the painting holding out a bunch of flowers - violets, rosebuds and jasmines - in her right hand. She is dressed in ancient style, with a bright white robe that slides down over her right shoulder, offering a glimpse of her breast, while her head gently rests on her left shoulder as she gazes to the side.
The contrast between the white robe of the woman and the darkness that surrounds her tends to draw the spectator's eye to her adorable and likeable face, which is characterised by luminous pale skin, pink cheeks and a face framed by loose long copper blonde hair - this was the typical hair colour of women painted by Titian.
It is housed within a stunning and highly elaborate Italian Florentine gilded scrolling foliate frame.
The frame is inscribed verso with 'Copy of the Original at the Galleria Uffizi, Firenze' bearing the wax seal mark of the Uffizi Gallery, making it an officialy sanctioned copy of the Titian painting.
Add this splendid antique painting to a very special wall in your home.
